The MAGNET model framework for assessing policy coherence and SDGs: Application to the bioeconomy

This report presents a description of the economic modelling tool MAGNET employed by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) to perform assessments of, among others, the bioeconomy. Additional sector splits of the bio-based sectors as well as the launch of the MAGNET Sustainable Development Goal Insights Module, has further consolidated MAGNET as an attractive option for policy coherence assessments of different scenarios through the evaluation of synergies or trade-offs. To illustrate the flexibility of the model, a detailed medium-term baseline to 2030 is described, replete with numerous economic-, demographic-, biophysical- and policy-drivers.
